“How much is it going to cost?” This is typically the first question someone asks when talking about home security systems in Midland TX. The reality is that a reliable home security system is not very expensive.  In fact the cost is easily offset by the benefits you recieve in terms of providing protection for you, your family and your home. Statistics for 2017 showed that American Households spent an amazing 34 Billion dollars on home security systems.  This represented a nearly 70% increase over the last 5 years. The reasons for this is simple. Reliability, affordability and desire for more protection are the key elements driving this growth. When you consider the actual cost to you for your home security system there are some core costs that you need to include.  Those core costs are initial installation costs and monthly monitoring fees. These vary from company to company but are primarily driven by the type of home security system you choose to install and the added features you enhance your securtiy system with.

Installation costs

Installation costs for a basic home security system are pretty standard across the industry at approximately 100 dollars. The more sophisticated and complex your Midland TX home security system is, the more this initial cost may be.  The basic installation costs should cover everything you need to get you up and running including sensors for all entry points, a master control panel and frequently a motion detector. Additional features such a glass breakage sensors, security cameras, home automation, smoke detectors and fire detectors can result in additional installation costs as well as an increase in your monthly monitoring fee.  The key is to ensure you get a thorough evaluation of you security needs and get the system and enhancements that are right for you.

Monthly monitoring fees

The monthly monitoring fees covers having your home security system monitored by a professional security company 24/7/365. This covers not only the monitoring but includes having someone contact you immediately in the event of an alert and then notifying local Midland TX authorities if the situation warrants a response. These fees can vary but on average, approximately $50 per month is normal for an adequate home security system. This average amount will increase if you include additional enhancements such as a video surveillance system. These fees are typically locked in for the duration of the contract but may increase due to equipment upgrades to your system or the monitoring capabilities.
